$440 OFF Kapex + UG Stand Combo Set - Order Now! (US)
« on: February 18, 2020, 12:19 PM »
Order now and SAVE $440 on the Festool KAPEX + UG Mobile Stand Set!

For a limited time, we're offering phenomenal savings on the newly redesigned KAPEX KS 120 REB with the UG Mobile Stand, which is available with metric or imperial scales. Pre-order now to save big, orders ship on April 1st!

Why does the Kapex Miter Saw + Mobile Stand ship on April 1st?

Update 3/18: Due to supply chain disruptives, we do not have a definitive ship date for the Kapex promo at this time.

We currently have these items in stock. Per Festool's requirements this deal can only be shipped during the promotional period, beginning on April 1st 30th. If you order by credit card, you will be charged when the order ships. Pre-order now to guarantee availability.

Why should I pre-order this deal?

Festool has stated there's a limited number of units allocated for this promotion. Promotional pricing is available while supplies last or through June 30th, whichever comes first.

Pre-order now!

Tom's video: at 1:16, that's a good cut alignment precision trick.

The promo offer is sweet.

Question: It's a little confusing because all the pre-sale info I see shows the saw, stand and wings. The confusion comes from the assumption that "KAPEX KS 120 REB with the UG Mobile Stand, which is available with metric or imperial scales" comes with the wings. Can anyone help clear this up?

Nevermind...I found the details. The wings (material support), stand and saw are included. Pretty good deal considering the cost individually.

@J.Patching, the extensions (wings) are included, yes. You get what's shown below.

I have purchased from festoolproducts.com in the past with great results. However, I’m curious if this promotion is being offered by other authorized festool dealers, such as Woodcraft or Anderson Plywood in L.A. Does anyone know the answer? Thanks.

I called my local Woodcraft and they said it applies to all authorized Festool dealers. I will be reserving one since I was going to get the whole system anyways. Glad this offer is available so it pushed me over the edge sooner.

I didn't know Festool has anytools where they they gave folks the inch vs metric option. Has it been this way or is Festool going to start giving folks an option finally?

I may have been the first to order on this promotion - I’ve been contemplating for weeks, and the email promotion made me pull the trigger immediately.

Not to go too far off topic, but is there a 3’ 36mm hose made just for the Kapex?  I’ve heard several speak of using one, but not sure if it’s commercially available or if people are making their own?  If the latter, anyone interested in splitting a 3.5m hose???

@DeformedTree  - the Metric version has always been available. The imperial version was added later but both versions have been available since.

I purchased a 6' Festool 36 mm pre-made hose from a tool retailer in NY about 6 years ago, can't remember the name...sorry. Bob Marino also offered 6' hoses with ends when he was in business and Festool Nirvana also offered them about 5-6 years ago.

It doesn't appear that anyone is currently offering these already made.

Just a quick bump to the thread here for anyone considering jumping on this promotion.

Festool is indicating that the inventory they have allocated for the promotion may be sold out soon.

I would recommend pre-ordering to guarantee availability if you plan on taking advantage of these great savings. After all, you're getting the new improved Kapex even cheaper than some dealers are selling the discontinued model! With the caveat of ordering it with the UG at full price, of course.

Reminder - We do not charge credit cards until the order ships.

@ADKMedic, thanks for order, much appreciated!

We will be sure to ship it discretely in several large boxes with Tool Nut written on them  [tongue] Just tell her you saved $440 and that should help. Technically, you're really saving $465 since the Kapex goes up $25 on April 1st. See, even better.  [cool]

Floorspace required for folded Kapex/UG
« Reply #18 on: February 23, 2020, 03:15 PM »
So..  the discount is tempting.  I'm looking around my garage for space to stash it between projects.

Can anybody tell me what the floor space requirements are to park a folded Kapex on UG stand?

I'm guessing ~24" w x 24" d x 3' high, but if anybody has actual measurements it would be helpful.

Thanks!!

Bump, in case you missed it, this is a pretty sweet deal. These are the best savings ever offered by Festool. If you're on the fence on getting a Kapex, you may not want to let this one pass by.

Again, Festool has indicated quickly dwindling inventory availability for this promo.

@Shane Holland - In these days of corona-craziness, I think Festool should allow you to ship the Kapex deals out early...  Especially to those of us stuck at home with kids out of school.  Just sayin...  LOL

All, we have received a notification from Festool USA that due to impacts on their supply chain, the original ship date for the Kapex promo has been delayed. This delay impacts all Festool retailers in the U.S.

For those who have ordered from Tool Nut, let me know if you have any questions or contact our customer service team at info@toolnut.com.

@Shane Holland is it August 1 now???  I know it’s not Toolnut, it’s Festool, but this is irritating.  It’s not like these items aren’t available, like the STM. Ugh.

@manuc  Big Sky Tools offers reconditioned Hitachi Mitre Saws.  I have not personally bought any, but I get there emails and they do offer some deals.  There "C" grade are the cheapest.  You might have to upgrade the blade, but one of them might work for you short term.

Hope this helps.

Please note my retraction and apology in a later post, the order update from ToolNut on my order had made it to spam, thanks gmail.

So I contacted festoolproducts.com (ToolNut) yesterday and they let me know that their orders are now delayed to 8/1. I assume everyone else's are as well?

A couple of things:
- August? Really? I mean ok, I understand that a lot has been going on in the world - supply chains disrupted, logistics all screwed up. This is a FOUR MONTH delay though, it honestly feels like Festool wasn't really ready to fulfill these orders in the first place.
- I am super-disappointed with ToolNut over their communications on this. They are literally doing NOTHING to proactively communicate this out to customers. Both times I have received updates (the first delay to 4/30 and now this) were after I reached out to them for status. Their site provides no updates at all, the order simply says "processing". They aren't emailing customers who have pending orders - or at least not based on my experience. It seems crazy that they wouldn't do anything to communicate about what is now a huge delay in shipping an order.

Again, I realize that a lot of the world is in a tough spot right now and that we're all dealing with bigger issues than this. I just don't think you can completely abandon customer service in a time of hardship. I think that Festool and ToolNut can do better. How hard would it be for ToolNut to take a look at all of their open orders for this bundle and email their customers with an update?

@mbcomer welcome to the forum.

I understand and share your frustration that the Kapex promo has been delayed.

We (Tool Nut) sent our customers emails twice with updates on the Kapex promo. The first update was sent on March 17th and again on April 30th with an new update. Both times we sent updates shortly after receiving new information from Festool about the impact on the ETA for shipment. This is a standard practice for us. If you've unsubscribed from our emails, you will not receive these updates. If you haven't unsubscribed, you may want to check your spam folder. We always do our best to keep our customers informed of changes to delivery dates if the change is more than a week or so from the original shipment date.

That said, we have no control over the impact of COVID19 on Festool's manufacturing or supply chain. I do believe that there was a legitimate impact that was out of their control.

I would appreciate it if you would reach out to me directly at shane@toolnut.com so I can give you more details and check your email subscription status to make sure you get any future updates.

Thank you,
Shane

@Shane Holland, thank you for your response.

First - I just checked my account and the only option I find is "General Subscription" under "Newsletter Subscriptions". Mine was unchecked. I don't know why, I certainly never unchecked it - I enjoy getting tool and woodworking related newsletters, so certainly would not have opted-out of ToolNut or FestoolProducts. In any case, I have enabled and saved.

Second - I did search my junk email just now and I did find an email from you guys on 4/30 with notification of the further delay. I therefore owe you an apology! I don't know why gmail chose to send your order update email to junk when other emails from the same address (info@toolnut.com) have come through just fine.

So, I apologize to the folks at ToolNut / FestoolProducts, they have been doing what they can to keep customers updated, it was gmail which let me down. It would be nice if the status and expected delivery of an order was a little more clear on the website, so perhaps you can speak to your technical team about an enhancement for that!

My thought, too, when I first read this thread. Regular updates on the website as and when news is received from Festool (in addition to direct emailing) will help in this and other cases where a customer's email system might have screened out the vendor's notifications.

@mbcomer no apology necessary. Glad you see the email, albeit in your spam folder.

We had to upgrade our website software recently because support is ending for the prior version in June. It's currently imperfect, admittedly. I value the feedback that you and @ChuckM gave regarding being able to see more accurate details of order status in your account. I will add this to our planned improvements. It's very important to us to make sure we're providing our customers with great service.

@pettyconstruction I wish we could, and we've asked Festool if we could because we do have inventory of the saw and stand, but Festool is prohibiting dealers from shipping the Kapex promo (including any of its components) before August 1st.
